New Generation camp

Great adventure, discovery series, ultimate series, leadership challenge and cross-culture challenge. The New Generation camp experience promotes diversity and adventure in a safe, Christ-centred environment.

Venue: Cranbrook Estate in Llandovery, St Ann.

Ages: 8-21 years.

Tent camping, a main feature, is a great source of adventure for the campers. Other features are tree house, nature trail, children's adventure course and obstacle course. Close by is the Laughlands River which is a refreshing stop at the end of a hot summer day, and each camp usually goes on an off-site activity. St Ann is full of places to see and things to do, including river rafting, mountain biking and horseback riding with Chukka Cove, as well as stops at Mystic Mountain, Dolphin Cove, Dunn's River Falls and Green Grotto Caves.

For more information log on to www.newgeneration-jm.org or call 293-6435.

By now you would have made up your mind about which of the many summer camps we have been sharing with you, to send the children for the holidays. If you still cannot decide, here are a few more to help you decide.
